Description

Please add extTable lines in bSNMPd config (/var/etc/snmpd.config) like:

# Extension commands (extTable)
extNames.0 = "uname" 
extCommand.0 = "/usr/bin/uname -a" 
extNames.1 = "uptime" 
extCommand.1 = "/usr/bin/uptime" 

or make custom sysDescr. For example, like:

SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: pfsense.localdomain pfSense-2.1 FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE-p13

This is necessary to be able identified over snmp as system with pfSense.
(Now pfSense system does not distinguish from normal system with FreeBSD.

The commands would only work if the user has the UCD module loaded, which is possible on 2.1. I would hesitate to add these in hardcoded though, opting to have a rowhelper-style control where you could enter as many commands as desired.

A patch to add the commands hardcoded can be grabbed from here:

I found old mails in mailing list, which discussed the issue:
http://www.mail-archive.com/support@pfsense.com/msg08634.html
Unfortunately, since then, nothing has changed..

sysDescr change is preferable because it will not depending on the module UCD.
offers the following format:

"$os $host $version $platform $base $base_version $base_hardware" 

for example monowall is displayed, as follows:
SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: "m0n0wall gw.de56.net 1.33 generic-pc FreeBSD 6.4-RELEASE-p5 i386"
